of the military as well, who decided on this occasion to side with the people. those supporters of mr. morsi, no doubt many of them will be bitterly angry. the real danger now for egypt is, will the division between mps pro and anti-morsi ca get even worse? in the past few days we have seen some bitter clashes, got a few people getting killed on the streets of cairo and other cities around the country and a lot more injured as well. will those clashes continue, or in the words of the army general, will there be national reconciliation and unity? it is hard to see how that is going to happen, but as far as these people here, and you can see the fireworks to going off, they are not worried about what his supporters think or feel, they are celebrating what they see as an enormous an historic victory. much for allvery your reporting their from cairo. among those calling for him to go is an egyptian american journalist who is a vocal supporter of the revolution which toppled hosni mubarak. she joins me now from new york. i know you are on your way to cairo. you must be excited about would you hav
of israeli society. some of mr. morsi's advisers signaled they would not take a coup lying down. what happens if he doesn't respond and the deadline hits in 48 hours? >> it would certainly depend on whether the military follow through with a coup. and if mr. morsi's supporters, the muslim brotherhood, it could come to something very serious something akin to a civil war. the egyptian military might keep in mind the history of military coups, in country after country the military comes in in circumstances of turmoil they're greeted by some segment of the population as the saviors, and then in a very short period of time they become deeply unpopular and ultimately it does bring damage to the reputation and standing of the military. it's not easy, actually, running a country. >> john: has mr. morsi has learned. at this point it's clear he doesn't want to give up his job. what can he and his administration do to avoid a coup? >> well, that's also a difficult question. the obvious thing would be to reach out to the opponents. there are some steps that could be taken making clear, for example, bein
exactly what is taking place here. the white house has tried to convince mr. morsi over the last few days lieu any number of calls from the secretary of state, the president, secretary of defense to his counterpart general assisi the head of the extreme forces that essentially led this military effort against the morsi regime to try to develop some sort of consensus. as a man just reported from cairo, president morsi was absolutely defiant in a speech that was as defiant as it could get against this outporing of anger and anmossity against his regime. the administration, the obama administration has had an extraordinarily difficult time navigating the changes that have taken place within egyptian society. those people have taken to the streets blame washington more or less for sadding up to preds morsi. at the same time, there's no doubt that no one in this administration was particularly comfortable with the anti-democratic autocratic nature of his regime. and so the fact is what i think the administration will want to see is a transition to a technocratic government that will do exactly
questions that faced mr. morsi's future? >> i think richard's report is dead on. the fact of the matter is we don't know what's going to happen to mr. morsi. we don't know whether or not he's going to call on his supporters to rise up against this -- what he has called a military coup and what the fellow muslim brotherhood leaders call a coup. it's clear the military is rounding up leaders of the muslim brotherhood and more radical elements of egyptian society. at the same time, you have to understand that what has caused this outpouring of anger and resentment against morsi is really a complete deterioration of what essentially results in an economic catastrophe for egypt, number one. and a total breakdown of law and order in the streets of the egyptian cities. these people have been desperate for some restoration of law and order. until the army is able to demonstrate that it is able to turn power over to an elected government, i think a majority of these people are going to want to let the military run the show for the time being. >> yeah, ambassador, let's take a look back before th
the church. one permit only. mr. morsi is a president of muslim brotherhood group only, not for ol egyptians. >> wendy: are you saying things are a lot worse for christians under morsi than they were under mubarak? >> sure. sure. from 2011 to now, a lot of attacks against coptics in egypt. the church properties were hijacked, and kidnappings everywhere. a lot of troubles under the muslim brotherhood er era. we expect more and more under islamic rule. this is islamic rule to discriminate and persecute non-muslims. >> wendy: do you think that the demonstrations planned on his one-year anniversary will turn violent? and how will the military respond? >> i think, sure. it is a matter of time that egypt will go through civil war because the muslim brotherhood and other islamists only believe in power and violence. so they don't keep silent -- they don't believe in peaceful demonstrations, so they will attack the peaceful demonstrations in all of the squares in egypt. egypt is in a crisis, and is really divided into two groups, two rival groups, like muslim brotherhood and islamists on the far sid
't, and it was pointed out earlier, hasn't put enough pressure on mr. morsi up to this point to behave in a democratic fashion. clearly he needs to be putting pressure on mr. morsi but also needs to be telling the egyptian military that receives $1.3 million of american largesse every year that we will not tolerate what we saw before with regard to autocratic politics and military's involvement in domestic affairs. there needs to be some process that produces civilian democratic pluralist politics where all egyptians are equal, regardless of gender, religion and so on. >> what you just said right there, your two-pronged answer is the contradiction i always here. point one, the u.s. has to recognize it has less influence. point two, the u.s. needs to exert pressure to make sure this outcome happens. that seems like what we face here as we watch the countdown toward the ultimatum tomorrow morning. egyptian activist here with me at the table. thank you both. that's "all in" for this evening. the "rachel maddow show" starts right now. >>> thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. there's a lot going
-- the military, the judiciary, and the security forces, the actual forces who pushed mr. morsi aside in the wake of these mass demonstrations. host: is it true that the leader was brought in under the previous president mubarak? guest: most of the judiciary is very much associated with the previous regime, and especially in the upper echelons they have been widely accused of being very close to the values and ideology of that previous regime. there is no reasonably that this gentleman is any different. this, i would is say, balance whatever, so to speak, because the street protests were real and the people's anger and demands for some sort of progress in terms of democratic and economic development are real. if you tries any kind of authoritarian moves, i think the situation is very volatile, and the people will go back into the streets. host: we saw al jazeera providing pictures of those who were supporting and against mr. morsi. what are the concerns of civil violence, civil war breaking out? guest: i think that is a big worry, what people are calling the algerian scenario. you may recall that
mr. morsi was elected and they did an abysmal job and they killed protesters and they didn't want to give up power. now i think thanks to mr. morsi and the abysmal rule of his cohorts in the brotherhood, the military's stock value harisen significantly. so they are seen as the saviors of the country. we'll see how long that lasts, that's likely to change. >> brown: nancy youssef, come in on that question, the role of the military. what are they saying right now and what are people saying about it and what the expectations are >> well, it's a very complicated and i dare say fickle relationship as egyptians have with the military. it's mentioned as egypt's only national organization that represents every segment of society. right now there's overwhelmingly euphoria that the military stepped in and broke this little impasse which has defined the morsi presidency almost from the minute he took office 368 days ago. that said, the 2011 uprising that led to the fall of former egyptian president hosni mubarak was in part about removing the military's grip on the country. yes, there had be
of their president. today marks one year since mr. morsi took office. >>> in pakistan, 49 people were killed today in a series of attacks. the bombings came as david cameron were in the capital of islamabad. the deadliest of the attacks happened near a shiite mosque. security forces prevented the bomber from entering the mosque or the death toll would have been higher. in all 29 people were killed in that attack including nine women and several children. >>> not one but two apartment towers came down in scotland today. the towers were demolished as part of a revitalization project. between the two towers sits a 110-year-old church. a piece of demolition debris crashed through the roof but the parishners say it could be fixed. prayers were said for the church to stay in one piece. >>> it was passed in 2011 but the sale that were already in the state is still allowed until tomorrow. officials say the ban will health slow the defamation of the shark. part of the san francisco chinese community has sued to overturn the ban. >>> more on our breaking news tonight as b.a.r.t. moves closer to the strike.
, the investment case for egypt is ugly at the moment. despite the fact we have seen the removal of mr. morsi and we may get another democratic party winning the next election is removed and the civil unrest that is taking place in egypt. >> this is the problem. interimly, military generals are not known for long term economic reform. can you see this cycle continuing? the economy tanks, people take to the streets, political instability and a new leader comes along? >> yeah. >> how do they get out of this problem? >> we have the elections. they have the task of imp limiting measures. it's going to antagonize the population. the stock market is likely to rally on the back of that. on a broader level, for the next few months until we do have a firm time line in place for the elections. we are going to see a similar unrest, backlash from morsi supporters and terrorism in some places. it's really going make the situation worse. so, egyptians are not going reaction positively to these deep cuts they are going to put in place. it's a situation that is not going to be resolved overnight. it's going
to president obama. i want to see what he said here. >> although mr. morsi was elected democratically there is more work to be done to create the conditions in which everybody feels that their voices are heard and that the government is responsive and truly representative. what we've encouraged the government to do is to reach out to the opposition and work out these issues in a process. it's not the u.s.' job to determine what those processes is but we have said go through processes that are legitimate and observe rule of law. >> cenk: that doesn't seem comforting. >> observe rule of law but if you can just change the rule of law by erasing it and putting in a new one i'm observing the rule of law. this is the new law. there is a structure that is not there, and you can't refer to it. >> cenk: i get a sense that obama was not buying what morsi was selling. it seemed like he was going to pull the prayer rug out from underneath him on the spot. >> the islamists have been power. it was an incredible secular society. when you talk about the lack of patience because of the hunger and lack
until tomorrow to work out their differences. mr. morsi shows no sign of giving him. today president obama urged him to call for early elections and he warned the military against playing out a coupe. what is taking place on the ground now, reza? >> reporter: i'm having a tough time hearing you but let me describe this scene outside the presidential palace where the crowds are getting bigger and louder. you get the sense they feel they are getting close to accomplishing this unlikely mission of toppling president morsi and the muslim brotherhood from power. they are getting excited because the clock is ticking for the deadline on wednesday. they told the government and opposition factions that you have two days to resolve this conflict and fix things. otherwise they said they were going to step in and put forth a road map out of this conflict. they would supersize it. over the past 24 hours really nothing has changed. indications are if we're getting closer to arm forces stepping in there are reports that the arm forces are giving a few more details about what would happen tomorrow i
consulates are protected. number two is all parties involved whether it's members of mr. morsi's party or opposition that they remain peaceful. although we have not seen the kind of violence many had fear sfeared so far -- >> president obama discussing the issue of egypt as they just finish up remarks there in egypt -- excuse me. in tanzania on the issue of egypt. we had the breaking news coming from ayman. wel continue to watch that and the announcement from the military there. of course we're also still watching what is happening in sanford, florida, in the george zimmerman trial. that continues as they now still continue the cross examination of the fbi audio expert. we'll follow that. going to take a quick break. more after this. the ones getting involved and staying engaged. they're not afraid to question the path they're on. because the one question they never want to ask is "how did i end up here?" i started schwab for those people. people who want to take ownership of their investments, like they do in every other aspect of their lives. humans. even when we cross our "ts" and d
-- in any other country mr. morsi would have been impeached for violating the constitution three or four times, you know, so talking about his legitimacy today is a joke. he has given himself powers beyond the constitution. he has appointed an attorney general that is jailing people with a phone call from mr. morsi. he has taken -- he has broken every single rule, egyptian and international rule. so calling himself legitimate today is only a farce. there is nobody i know who is not on the streets of cairo today. i have a friend or a relative or people -- if you look at the picture, this is only one square. there are four or five squares full of these people. you cannot -- we cannot talk about the egyptians being -- the descriptions are reunited to regain their country and their freedom. >> let me ask you, "the new york times" quotes security officials as saying that travel ban has been placed on the president and top muslim brotherhood figures. can you give me your reaction? talk a bit more about this travel ban. >> first of all, i think there are lots of rumors running around here, but
. the campaign's message was clear, mr. morsi, more people want you out than they want you in. but amid the euphoria, it's easy for the muslim brotherhood's position to get lost for president morsi's position to get lost. they maintain they never had a chance to succeed. remember five months after president morsi took office there were initial calls for his ouster. he always claimed that there were institutions in place that still had remnants of the mubarak regime that wanted to undermine his government. certainly behind us, at least some elements within this opposition include some supporter of the mubarak regime, some supporters of the military. they have accomplished their mission, too. but the president's position has always been i was democratically elected, let me finish my term, and then you can come out like you're doing right now, and with the ballot box vote me out. obviously it will never get to that. >> reza, one thing i wanted to ask, i'm seen in the media some pictures of demonstrators, not only protesting against former president morsi but also against president obama, s
of the egyptian people who forced the army to give back the right we gave to mr. morsi. he didn't behave correctly so that we told him give it back to us and we are going to choose somebody else. >> woodruff: but morsi supporters denounced the military's actions. >> ( translated ): we reject the rule of the military. we will reject it with peaceful moves but we will confront it, but not with molotovs, like they do. but we will not allow the state to go backwards by tens of years. >> woodruff: later, mansour did offer an olive branch to morsi's muslim brotherhood party. he told journalists: >> woodruff: but while brotherhood officials asked supporters not to resort to violence, they said the group would refuse to work with the new political system. meanwhile, egyptian security officials took the group's supreme leader, mohammed badie into custody. one of more than 200 brotherhood and other islamist leaders on a military wanted list. and placed morsi and at least a dozen of his aides under house arrest. reactions flooded in from around the region. turkey and tunisia were critical: tunisia's ruling e
. as calls for mr. morsi has been postponed to egypt. andrew was from chevy chase, maryland, and in the class of 2015 at kenyon college. >> susan saulny thank you for joining us. >>> the obama administration is playing down the damage done by the nsa leaks. susan rice, president obama's incoming national security adviser, says the damage from the highly-classified leaks is minimal. former nsa contractor edward snowden is on the run after leaking details of the program that targeted the online activity of millions of americans. snowden escaped from hong kong with the help of staff from wikileaks. now, on sunday morning, george stephanopoulos has an exclusive interview with wikileaks founder, julian assange. that's tomorrow, sunday morning on "this week." >>> more companies this morning are cutting ties with paula deen. sears, jcpenney, walgreens are dropping the celebrity chef. and deen is under fire after admitting in a court deposition she used racial slurs in the past. more former employees are considering a separate lawsuit accusing deen of racial discrimination. >>> a suburban new york mo
's clear right now is that although mr. morsi was elected democratically, there's more work to be done to create the conditions where everybody feels their voices are heard and the government is responsive and truly representative. what we've encouraged the government to do is to reach out to the opposition and work through these issues in a political process. >>> at that same news conference today, the president also addressed the future for self-described nsa whistleblower edward snowden saying there had been high-level discussions about how to extradite him back to the states. meanwhile, russian president vladimir putin says snowden will have to stop leaking secrets if he hopes to get asylum in russia. the u.s. has annulled snowden's passport. >> you were just mentioning the massive wildfire out west. the flames, we're learning, are being fueled by dry, hot, and windy weather. talking record heat here. 128 degrees in death valley, california, for example over this weekend. sin city was also hotter than normal with las vegas tying an all-time record of 117 degrees. wow. no picnic out
obama today urgedded morsi to seek consensus. >> although mr. morsi was elected democratically, there's more work to be done that creates the conditions in which everybody feels that their voices are heard and that the government is responsive and truly representative. >> warner: though yesterday's massive outpouring was peaceful last night brought a different story. the brotherhood's cairo headquarters was torched. men inside fired on protestors, killing several. in cairo today, a morsi supporter said the brotherhood would fight to protect their elected president. >> the battle is over the identity of this state right now. since the revolution happened the forces that we call secular are fighting so that egypt's identity will not be an islamic identity but i insist that egypt's identity must be islamic. >> warner: when the military ousted mubarak, it took overrunning the country. in today's statement the military council said it would, quote, not take part in the political or governing arena. as of midnight tonight, there have has been no public response from president morsi. routers
and secular egyptian feel completely let down by the administration of the u.s. support to mr. morsi and his gang during this last year. you know, we would have gotten rid of him earlier if they did not feel he had that support. with this support he misunderstood that support and used it to go against his own people, to declare himself as... you know, using pressure, putting all his friends and family in all key positions, you know, appointing the general attorney with a phone call from the president, you know. so wen mess partly people here in egypt i'm really sorry to say that but they blame this blind support to the muslim brotherhood. i mean, i hope... i know that the israelis for sure are not that stupid. i don't think they would have believed him, you know. but this is brought us to this point. i mean today okay it's not going to work anymore. we are now this this night and tomorrow night the most dangerous two nights in egypt because we don't know what these people will do. they are retired terrorists, as i say. they have a lot of weapons that they've acquired from libya and so on. if
, you know? >> rose: and if mr. morsi says "i'm not leaving," what happens? >> he already said he's not leaving yesterday. >> rose: i know. >> so he will be put down by the people. but, you know, any attempt to try show that this is a military coup is a farce, you know. you need to have someone here in cairo to tell you. i don't know a single person, friends, even enemies who are not on the streets today. this was a gang that took over egypt without any respect for the rule of law and order. they've animate it had judges. he took all the power in his hand. we have another fascist ruling egypt under the concept of a democracy that never took place. >> rose: you predicted this and talked about this -- that something like this would happen before the election even took place. >> yes, i know. i've bullpen telling you that all the time because the problem, the first time -- i told you that in the revolution they went home and left these people to reap the fruits of a revolution who came instead of building a country they went on a revenge range and went against everybody and ruined th
president morsi won votes last year when he won the presidency, and the campaign's message was clear -- mr. morsi, more egyptians want you out than they want you in. what this three-month compare did action it created a groundswell of support for owns of president morsi and a groundswell of rage against mr. morsi. on top of that you had this country's economic woes, the power cuts, energy shortages, and it culminated on sunday, the anniversary of president morsi's presidency, with the mass protests, not just here, but all over the country, millions demanded president morsi to step aside. a day later in came the armed forces with the ultimatuultimat today he is gone. >> thanks for that. right now we have a retired egyptian general is joining us, who's there at the demonstration. give us a sense of what's happening in egypt right now? >> well, actually i'm in the middle, people are saluting me now, people are very happy, and i'm next to tahrir square, and cannot really tell you. people are waving to me with the egyptian flags. people are very, very happy. can you repeat the question again? >

of protest we have ever seen in egypt. the people are speaking. we will rain down the road map for mr. morsi. he said he will not let egypt descended into a dark tunnel of conflict. watching these crowds, it does have a different feeling than a couple of years ago. it does not feel as amadeus. it feels more upbeat. liz: people in egypt saying on twitter that we could be the first country in human history to have a countdown to a military coup and welcoming it. they elected the muslim brotherhood. it does not feel as ominous as before. the dow up. i am handing you a stock market rally. connell: you are talking about the market. charles, they give very much. approving what is the new banking regulations. we have a new debate this morning over the dollar. john from forbes will bring it to us. the eu giving a thumbs up to a 4000 bit of an italian company. charles was talking about egypt on edge. president mohammad morsy. they want him out today or the protests turned ugly. we will have the bearing latest from the
mubarak and morsi, about a 16-month period. they have this mr. mansour, put into place as the newly interim president, we will call him. is he in charge or is the military in charge? >> reporter: well, that's really good question. no he will certainly be in charge of someday-to-day adares of the country. he will probably oversee a lot of the transitional policies of the government, but there's no doubt that egypt's military will cast a very big shadow, will certainly weigh in on a lot of the things that are happening, because at the end of the day this is their road map. so they will want to ensure that all of the vision that they laid out for the country would still be somewhat implemented. now, they are trying to put a civilian face on this they say they don't want anything to do with their country's politicsing, they want to go back to their barracks and run the security and their country's borders. there is no doubt that egypt's military, as it has demonstrated in the past year, still has a voice to be said and want it is to be heard when it comes to their country's big picture
calling mr. morsi last night with this message, president morsi, try to resolve this. try to meet the needs of the people and the drama building, chris, with these military choppers flying above tahrir square. >> you can hear it. thank you very much for the reporting from there. >> thanks so much. >>> let's turn now to christiane. christiane, there is a lot to get through on both of these topics, but first on the protests as you see it happening. what do you make of this ultimatum? very unusual. >> i've been there from the beginning watching this unfold. i think this is a most extraordinary moment. what you have is, essentially, the army basically threatening to come in and make a coup. after the revolution, the army was ruling for about a year before the elections, then morsi fired them and put them back into their barracks really. but he is incredibly isolated, his ministers are resigning, some six have resigned, and the people don't want the islamist agenda they believe he has. >> this is the first democratly elected leader and they are going to kick him out. >> let's see. that
it is time to cut off the $1.3 billion in military aid that american taxpayers provide to morsi. mr. obama declared he could not decide aid based on counting faces in a demonstration crowd or whether the recipient is following the rule of law. >> what is clear now, although he was elected democratically, there's more work to be done to create the conditions in which everybody feels their voices are heard. >> reporter: part of the reluctance to push morsi harder could be born out of the fact that it leaves them behind. >> they pled with protesters to remain peaceful, to use politics to resolve their differences, but at the same time we are sort of trapped supporting the morsi and muslim brotherhood government because we don't see many alternatives. >> as for syria, they con fifrmd some of the jihadist rebels beheadedc priest for allegedly collaborating with the regime of bashar al-assad. he was allegedly killed with a kitchen knife as a crowd cheered and snapped photos with smart phones. >> reporter: tomorrow, secretary of state john kerry has urgent meetings with the leaders of turkey and
to reach out and find a solution. >> obama: what is clear right now is that although mr. morsi was elected democratically, there's more work to be done to create the conditions in which everybody feels that their voices are heard and that the government is responsive and truly representative. >> the media also asked him about the current state of nsa leaker edward snowden who is basically camped out in the moscow airport. president says there has been high-level discussions with russia concerning snowden but because we don't have an extradition treaty, he's hopeful the russian government will make a decision that abides by law procedures regarding international travel. he says the administration officials are currently reporting in news reports that u.s. has spied on allies saying he's the end user of this information. if he wanted to know what they're thinking, he would ask them. we're back after the break. >> telling important stories that need to be told. (vo)and on the next vanguard: >> one of the things that we seek for, is to die as a martyr. (vo) what drove a small town kid to the a
of mr. morsi's party or the opposition, that they remain peaceful. jenna: michael munet is a dual citizen of both egypt and the united states. he's currently the head of egypt's political party and one of the opposition leaders, and he's joining us live from cairo. michael, we're taking a look at the wide swath of crowds in the streets of cairo, and we understand that people want an alternative to morsi. but who is that alternative? who would you like to see in power? >> are well, i mean, we want to see morsi go first, and i think i want to go back to what president obama says. i think president obama's making another mistake where he's delaying what he should be actually doing. he should be calling on president morsi to respect the will of the people and to step down peacefully and to pull his supporters that have been trying to terrorize protesters, peaceful protesters from the streets and to just yield to the will of the people. we've seen millions and millions of people since the 30th going on the streets asking for his resignation. this is the only thing that at this stage an
of them together. so what the president needs to do is to tell mr. morsi, you have to do one of two: either you will disband your cabinet and ask the prime minister from the opposition to form the cabinet, which still is part of the constitutional process, or you would resign and you would become the head of the opposition. one or two. >> clayton: also aid. we give a lot of money to egypt. let's take a look at our screen. this is the amount we've given overt years, back to 2009. 1.6 billion. it's actually dropped a little bit. up close to $2 billion we're sending to egypt. for what? what does that get sinus what does it buy in congress? >> basically the idea, the original idea was that an egypt ally to the united states would secure the peace process with israel, will secure the passage of our fleet and all international ships through the suez canal. now an increasing power of the muslim brotherhood in egypt is going to escalate tensions through gaza with israel. it's going to give support to the islamists in the region. he blocked -- when france tried to fight al-qaeda in mali, p
to avoid a coupe. mr. obama urged egyptian officials not to arrest president morsi or his supporter hes. i have also directed the relevant departments and agencies to review the implications under u.s. law for our assistance to the government of egypt. officials have avoided calling the egyptian action a coupe since that could trigger legal moves that would impact u.s. aid to egypt for many members of congress the egyptian military is more reliable than morsi's muslim brotherhood. shepard? >> shepard: wendell goler live at the white house. thanks very much. the american embassy has been largely evacuated now. here's the deal. a lot of people in the crowds in egypt think that the united states was supporting president morsi and a lot of people have turned very much anti-american as a result of it. not anti-american people but anti-american foreign policy. of course, the truth of the matter is, this military thing works out better for all of us or at least has the potential to do so. at any rate, the state department is ordering most u.s. embassy workers who evacuate egypt completely after t
